Hello.
As for me, I just arrived in Montreal and took care of opening my account on site.
I'm not at Desjardins. And I do not wish to advertise but know that most banks offer the first year of bank charges to newcomers. There's no need to even negotiate, it's their welcome offer. Debit and credit card offered.
The banks are really different here. You should know that each bank offers a fixed price for the number of bank transactions carried out per month, for a more or less high price (Absolutely any movement counts as a transaction. Except the deposit of money on your account by transfer).
The year of fees offered allows you to realize which package you will need the following year (we can make an average of the number of transactions and find our way thanks to that).
Then you have to see which bank offers what ... Desjardins offers unlimited travel tickets on weekends, advantages with certain telephone operators ... you have to take the time to shop around and find out. ;)

Hello
Do I have to open an account before leaving?
Because we just arrived 3 weeks ago. We have opened an account with desjardins but is the promotion valid even in this case?
Thanks in advance for the reply.

Hello.
Opening an account before departure is not compulsory but recommended.
It allows you to anticipate administrative procedures, to transfer funds before your departure and to have means of payment as soon as you arrive on site.
If you have already opened your account in a Desjardins caisse, we thank you for your interest in Desjardins and invite you to contact the team dedicated to newcomers to Desjardins directly to take advantage of this offer:
- by calling 514 875-4266, option 1
- by writing to [email protected]
